I'm curious about what sig has in 3" compact 9mm too, actually

(yes I'm still looking, I know I should just buy something and be done with it)

good problem to have I guess. but which one? hmmmmmmm
Both.

I hate 10rnd mags. They never seat that 10th rnd easily because if you can seat that 10th rnd too easily, you can maybe get an 11th in there.

I'd go with whichever feels nicer which in your case would be the M&P.

Have to look into the grip issue for the sig too. where to find that is going to be a hunt, not the most popular model.

Not sure where you'd find a shop with Sig's in stock. What are you looking for?

But any normal gun owner would have more than just one mag.

That's not a good excuse for making magazines like this though. This is one of the reasons I'd rather have a 45 then a 40 or 9. Not to mention, unless you have pre-ban mags, you're still stuck with 10rnds anyway. My 228 will hold 18 in a Mec-Gar mag that sits just about flush with the bottom.

Probably gonna have to order them online. Are they interchangeable with the SP2022?

Haven't found evidence that it is yet. Need to keep looking.

10 round magazines are cheap out here and good to use for competitions--who in their right mind would use a 10-rounder in a gun designed to hold 18 in my state? Might as well abuse the 10-rounders instead.

Some competition stuff just does not seem to be on the shelf....I had to get a couple 1-2-5 round garand clips and even the mail order places I had to wait on...lesson learned tho...get them early.
